After Effects does a great job of mimicking the real world—but nothing beats the real world.

Here’s the first Stop Motion Haiku video I ever made, back in May 2013. This video made me realize why I don’t want to use narration in my animated text videos.

I want to explore the possibilities of animated text. Sometimes I have trouble explaining to people what I mean by that, and why I’m bothering with this whole Stop Motion Haiku project. Allow me to elucidate.
